The guy that wanted the last colony of Dorymyrmex insanus backed out, one left at $20. I held the colony for 2 weeks but they still haven't picked it up. She's got some decent sized larvae that are almost ready to pupate.

Sorry I'm out of Honeypots. I have a couple I'm keeping for myself. If I change my mind I'd sell them but right now I'll be holding on to them.

Myrmecocystus mexicanus - Only one available - $125

Decided to only keep one of each Myrmecocystus colony so I'm selling this colony. Here's a very healthy M. mexicanus colony with a decent brood pile, some larvae are almost big enough to pupate. There's at least one cocoon that I can see and there are about 10 workers. They're in a natural dirt formicarium with an inner tube so they dig near the outer glass. The top of the inner tube comes off and you can water it. Only put a tablespoon at a time and see how humid the soil gets. I've gone two months without adding water but obviously you'll have to keep checking to make sure they're okay. Colony is 6 months old and doing well. They can probably stay in this formicarium for another year or even two. They only have two chambers and there's a whole lot of space left.

Myrmecocystus mimicus - Only one available - $125

Decided to only keep one of each Myrmecocystus colony so I'm selling this colony. Here's my Myrmecocystus mimicus colony with a decent brood pile, bigger pile than the M. mexicanus but the larvae are smaller. I'm estimating about 15-20 eggs/larvae on there. There are about 8 workers. They're in a natural dirt formicarium with an inner tube so they dig near the outer glass. The top of the inner tube comes off and you can water it. Be careful with this one when adding water, add no more than a teaspoon at a time and check back an hour later before you add more. I've gone two months without adding water but obviously you'll have to keep checking to make sure they're okay. Colony is 6 months old and doing well. They can probably stay in this formicarium for another year or even two. They only have two chambers and there's a whole lot of space left.

 

 

Check out her really distended gaster! She's in full egg production mode.

No longer available

 

Formica francoeuri

Size: Large

Available: 7

3x 1 Queen in 16mm x 125mm glass test tube - 20$

 

 

Newly caught queens! They're almost as big as Camponotus queens and they have a high success rate. Most queens have already laid eggs!

There are no guarantees since they have no workers yet. That's why I'm selling them cheap and in a bundle. There should be no problems if you get three!

Special offer!

I caught queens on 07/24/18 and am letting them go in bundles, queens only as they're newly caught! Buy 15 queens and get a free Formica francoeuri colony of 1 queen with 1+ workers! 

 

Disclaimer: Since these are newly caught queens I cannot guarantee their fertility. I am giving them in bundles to alleviate the risk of infertility. The majority of these queens will be fertile but the bundle is there just in case of extremely bad luck.

 

Solenopsis xyloni - 2 Queens for $15, 5 Queens for $30, 10 Queens for $50
